On April 16, 2019, Professor Kathryn "Kate" Whiteley accompanied a group of students in her upper level Women in Criminal Justice class from Lebanon Valley College across the grounds of SCI Camp Hill. Unit Manager Jeffrey Witherite and PREA Lieutenant Bettylou Mihal, a 2007 graduate of Lebanon Valley College, led the group.

The purpose of the tour was to get a sense of the culture inside the prison for females working in a male-dominated field. The students observed the interactions of female staff members with male staff members and inmates.

At the conclusion of the tour, Mihal led a discussion in the Main Gate Training Room. The students, both male and female, asked questions about a wide variety of topics ranging from the various positions available within the Department of Corrections to what would be considered a "normal" day for a corrections officer.
